Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
Nothing but problems with this doctor. First surgery prescribes an inadequate amount of pain medicine. Ended up in the ER on morphine drip because of it. When other surgeons in ER found out about medicine dosage, all were stunned. Second surgery dr blecha writes a prescription that has 2 narcotics on the same piece of paper which come to find is illegal. This man is uninformed and has a terrible bedside manner.
